Dear Ruby and family,

I was deeply saddened to hear about the sudden death of your dad and husband, Jesus. I know how difficult this must be for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I have many fond memories from our younger days of your dad. He tried to be fierce but I could see he was a kind, gentle man who loved his family dearly. He had a great sense of humor. Even though I hadn't seen your dad in a long time, I will always remember him fondly.

I wish you comfort and blessings to you and your family during this time and always,

Crystal Bagoon, Seattle, Washington
